3 Quick tips for beautiful skin this Autumn
As much as I love the warmer weather, this might just be my favourite time of the year. It looks beautiful everywhere you turn, the food gets hearty and delicious and most of all, every weekend I get to cosy up on the sofa with a blanket, hot chocolate and a film or a book. Heaven right?
So, to ensure your skin remains nourished and radiant as the temperatures begin to change, here are my top 3 Autumn tips to keep your skin looking it’s best.
#1. Don’t freak out if you breakout
Changes in humidity and temperature can cause your skin to become a little unsettled as it adjusts. The key is not to panic.
Simply use 3-5 drops of the Exfoliating Cell Renewal Serum each night. The Glycolic & Lactic Acids will gently remove any blockages in your pores to keep your skin clear and glowing all season long.
#2. Take care of your lips and hands
One of the most common skin concerns in colder weather is dry hands and chapped lips - understandably so.
Not only are they are constantly exposed to the colder weather, but the skin on your hands and lips produce less natural oil compared to the rest of your body. Therefore, they require extra protection.
Make sure you invest in a good lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and reapply regularly to lock in moisture. For your hands, simply use the Ultimate Moisturiser and massage it in as you would with your face - the shea butter is perfect for protecting and nourishing your skin barrier.
However, if you’re suffering from particularly sore or excessively dry hands, get yourself a separate, extra rich hand cream instead.
#3. Continue to apply this one essential product
Although the UVB rays that burn our skin are not as prevalent in the Autumn, the UVA rays that age and damage our skin are just as strong. To keep your skin healthy and youthful, make sure you’re applying BASE Protection - SPF 50 as the last step in your morning skincare routine, daily. Your future self will thank you for it.
I hope this helps to keep your skin right on track as the leaves begin to fall and remember if you ever have any questions at all, I’m only a message away.
